Clinical Pathology

The Clinical Laboratories of the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine offer an extensive set of routine and complex tests that facilitate accurate diagnoses and optimal treatment plans. Combining modern robotic technology with the expertise of skilled pathologists and technologists, our fully accredited labs serve The Mount Sinai Hospital, our specialized centers, as well as extensive outpatient and community outreach programs. Our board certified team members specialize in areas such as molecular pathology, tumor cytogenetics, and microbiology, and work together to provide in-depth evaluation with rapid turnaround times. Along with our research and education activities, our goal is to provide the best possible care for our patients.

Mount Sinai labs perform more than 30 million tests each year – but we never forget that behind each test is one patient and one family, hoping for the best result,"- Adolfo Firpo-Betancourt, MD

This laboratory operates under a permit from the New York State Department of Health and is accredited by the College of American Pathologists.

Clinical Laboratories collaborates with ARUP Laboratories on several fronts. ARUP is our preferred laboratory for reference lab testing for both inpatients and outpatients. Together, we provide more information about laboratory testing at the time test orders are placed.
